How to undo approved bank feeds?

Hello, I recently just downloaded a lot of transactions from the bank to Quickbooks Desktop and I accidentally approved a couple deposits that were automatically matched. On the other hand I have a program that I do invoices with and it automatically puts in invoices and deposits whenever we get paid/ make an invoice. My question is how do I undo those deposits I approved?

My other question is where did those automatically matched transactions go, because when I checked through the register it doesn't seem like they are there?



Hello, Leo13.


It's nice to have you in the Community. Allow me to help share some information about matching and unmatching transactions from your bank feeds. 


You can remove multiple deposits you've approved from the Transaction list window. Let me walk you through how to do it at one time in QuickBooks. 

  1. From the Banking menu, select Banking Feeds.
  2. Select Bank Feeds Center.
  3. On the left pane, select a specific bank account. 
  4. Click the Transaction List button.
  5. On the Transactions List window, mark all transactions you need to undo.
  6. Click the Batch Actions drop-down and select Ignore.

After that, you need to categorize the payee and account to save the changes. Once done, Quick Add the transaction to the register so that it won't go back to the Auto-Matched again. 


Here's how:

  1. On Transaction List page, find the unmatched transactions.  
  2. On the ACTION column, click the drop-down and select Add More Details.
  3. Add the Payee and Account name, and other information. 
  4. Click Add to QuickBooks.
  5. On the ACTION column again, click the drop-down and select Quick Add.

The following article contains more information about this: Add and match Bank Feed transactions.


To answer your second question, generally, the downloaded transaction will be added to your register in QuickBooks. To better isolate your case, I recommend checking your bank register through the Chart of Accounts. 


Here's how: 

  1. Go to Lists and choose Chart of Accounts.
  2. Double-click on the bank account to see the register. 
  3. Find the downloaded transaction. 

You can also use the Find command tool to see the transactions easily. Just click the Go to button at the top left, then enter the desired filters. Click Back or Next to locate them. 


These resources should help to get you back on track to manage your downloaded transactions. Drop me a comment below if you have any additional questions about bank feeds. I'll be happy to help you further. Have a great day ahead.

Hi @MaryGraceS 


I have a similar situation as the described above and I followed your instructions for solution. However, I do not have this button "Transaction list". I already finished with the matching/ adding process and now it says "There are no transactions to review".

I need something like the undo button in Quickbooks Online where you can go to all the transactions that reviewed and click undo. Is here, in Quickbooks Pro a similar place where I can do this?

Hi there, PBG.


As of the moment, QuickBooks desktop doesn't have the undo button. If you want to recategorize the transaction, we can edit it in the register. If you want to remove the transaction, you'll have to delete the transaction. We'll have to take note deleting means taking out the transaction completely. 


Here's how to edit:

  1. Select Lists from the top menu bar.
  2. Choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Select the appropriate bank account.
  4. Search the transaction, click it.
  5. Edit the transaction.
  6. Hit Save & Close.

You can follow these steps to delete the transaction (if you wish to remove it):

  1. Select Lists from the top menu bar.
  2. Choose Chart of Accounts.
  3. Select the appropriate bank account.
  4. Search the transaction, click it.
  5. Click the Delete (X) button.
  6. Hit OK to confirm.

I've added an article that will guide you in handling bank transactions in QuickBooks: Add and match Bank Feed transactions.
